[xmbc1.52] {VOL+} = b and {VOL-} = c ???

Post by jerome »

Hello, I use this excellent application since many time ago, and I am very happy with it.

Now I am using the latest version (1.52) and Windows Xp SP3, I have this problem:

- With old version (1.4x) I could configure Button 4 and 5 to control volume, using Simulated Keystrokes (explorer.exe), with different "Auto repeat delay" for Volume UP (more slow) and Volume DOWN (faster). This works perfect, just a click over the clock on the bar, then button 4 and 5 do the job.

- But now, using the same configuration, the result is: {VOL+} = b and {VOL-} = c :? :?

- Of course there is the "Volume Up" and "Volume Down" options, but they don't allowed me to control the speed of the auto repeat.

Is there a solution for this problem??

Best regards

Jerome

Oh dear, another bug :(
I think the vol option in simulated keys if broken. I will have a look into it ASAP and try and fix it.
I guess all the changes to the way that keys are sent, have broken got this one :(

It seems that the Volume Up option is also affect (which makes sense as it just sends the key stroke internally).

I cant promise anything because I'm rather busy but I will try and look at it at the weekend. Otherwise, you might have to wait till between XMAS & NY.

Thanks,
Phil

lol, I was wrong. The internal option volume up/down work fine.
I have already looked into it and can confirm its a bug as a result of the simulated keystroke "fixes" made in v1.50 or 1.51.

Its easy to fix (already done) so it *will* be fixed in the next version. Cant say when that will be - but hopefully this year :). If not I will let you know when a beta is available if you want to try that (maybe the weekend). There are some other problems to investigate regarding layers and simulated keys (and they wont be so easy!).

Thanks,
Phil
